Speaking to PTI, Susaimo International’s Director and Founder Surya Kumar Singh, said, “the company plans to foray into automative tractor-trailer manufacturing in India with initial estimates of 6,000 trailers a year.”
He added: “We are working on manufacturing of these advanced tractor trailers at Jamshedpur through a joint venture (JV) with ASL Industries. These trailers will be made as per flat pack model which can be easily transported to long distances and assembled locally in one-hour time. Light body weight will help to consume less fuel.”
